Jeff Bezos made an announcement yesterday that could have a major impact on one of the biggest challenges that we are facing today; he committed to spending $10 Billion dollars US on the fight against the Climate Crisis.
The head of Amazon is worth around $130 billion, and said on his Instagram account that he will be launching the Bezos Earth Fund. He also said it will be a global initiative to fund scientists, activists and non-government organizations (NGOs) that are making efforts to protect the earth.
With the first of the grants not coming until this summer it will be a while yet before any impact of this will be felt. But for making any effort at all in this important issue, kudos are being given.
